I've heard from a number of friends and readers ... no, that's pretty much the same thing. Let me start again.
I've heard from a number of friends, both those I've met face to face as well as those I've met on-line, and the consensus is that I should continue.
The speed and frequency of posting will be in irregular bursts, much like a teenager first encountering an accelerator. But I'll stick around. Who knows? I might have something to say, one of these days. :)

If you've glanced at the local temp on my sidebar, you've seen that it's been darned cold for the last week. It was a bit of a shock to the ol' system, as they say, to return from the consistent 82 degrees in Honolulu to the negative temps here. But it's not unexpected.
The temp at my building this morning (outside, not inside) was -7° F, and that's a pretty good indicator of how the last three mornings have been. I quickly discovered that the new ice scraper I purchased is rubbish. Fortunately, we have a couple of spares in the garage, so tomorrow morning's scraping-o'-the-windshield should be a bit easier.
Oh - some of you may have just caught the bit about me driving a sedan, and remembered that I posted a few months ago about a Ford Escape.
It seems that Younger Daughter, after borrowing it for a couple of days while her car was in the shop, decided she likes it way better than the car.
A dad's gotta do what a dad's gotta do. :)
I'll get another SUV or pickup ... eventually. Until then, I'm glad to see that the sedan has traction control. Snow's coming.
